« Penny taught spoken English for 2 years both privately and at a French university to students of all ages from pre-school to 80 year olds. She made the lessons both fun and informative. As a person, she is empathetic, calm, friendly - and very reliable. Penny is my daughter - but that aside, I have no hesitation in recommending her if you want to improve your English, whether business or conversational. »

French teacher offering lessons in London - language and culture - online or in person

Methodology

My teaching is relaxed, and I like to start with a conversation and look at a different topic area in each session. I can adapt my classes to your needs, and specifically cover GCSE & A-Level topics as needed. I have a reasonably informal approach to teaching, as I believe languages are best learnt in a fun & relaxed environment.

Experience

I studied French at university in Edinburgh, and spent 3 years living in France after graduating, working as a lecturer at a French University, where I taught up to 30 students at once. I am specialised in giving speaking lessons, but I can also focus more on grammar & writing
